    Re: Sleepless nights

    You definitely are not alone...but I know it feels that way sometimes! I have read that it's pretty common for babies to have sleep regressions at 4 months old. There is a good bit of information...

    Re: Thrush from hell ...

    I started taking diflucan last Monday, BUT it was without a loading dose. When I saw the LC/midwife on Wednesday, she said that what I had been prescribed wouldn't do the trick. So she wrote a new...

    Thrush from hell ...

    Hello! I have another thread going right now regarding a hard knot in my nipple pore. I decided to start a new one because I finally found someone who believes she knows what the knot is and why...
  4. Re: Hard knot in nipple pore - desperate for help!

    Finally an opportunity to provide an update! I went to see the LC/midwife on Wednesday. After I told her what is and has been going on, she told me she had a pretty good idea what it is - but she...
  5. Re: Hard knot in nipple pore - desperate for help!

    Hello again. No, the doctor didn't offer antibiotics. I specifically asked, too. She also didn't culture my milk after I asked. And, to be honest, she was the most helpful so far.

    The breast...
  6. Re: Hard knot in nipple pore - desperate for help!

    Also, if neither of these surgeons can help and the diflucan doesn't help things, I'm thinking about weaning from the breast with the knot in the nipple pore. I'm just not sure how to do it given...
  7. Re: Hard knot in nipple pore - desperate for help!

    I have a brief update. I met with a doctor today and had her feel for the little knot in my nipple. She felt it, but she could not get it to show up on the ultrasound. She prescribed diflucan...
  8. Re: Hard knot in nipple pore - desperate for help!

    It's been a few days and I thought I would post an update on my situation. The never ending situation.

    I have been taking GSE pills, probiotics and lecithin around the clock. My nipple has...
  9. Re: Hard knot in nipple pore - desperate for help!

    Thanks so much! I also go back and forth between "is it thrush" or "is it mastitis"? Here's what I have been doing - would love to see what you think. I have been wiping with the Grapefruit Seed...
  10. Re: Hard knot in nipple pore - desperate for help!

    I am varying the nursing positions more, as you suggested. And I'll get some different sized shields. I am using an antifungal cream right now. I'll have to see my dr for - isn't it something that...
  11. Re: Hard knot in nipple pore - desperate for help!

    The more I think about this, the more I am wondering whether I have thrush. I actually have about 5 white spots (in the pores) on my nipple. I was assuming the redness was from all of the nonsense...
  12. Re: Hard knot in nipple pore - desperate for help!

    I live in Carlisle and work in Harrisburg, PA.

    It was like the vinegar made the entire nipple raw. The whole thing was red and cracked after using it. There was also all of these white spots...
  13. Re: Hard knot in nipple pore - desperate for help!

    The ultrasound didn't show anything. She placed the thing over my nipple, just like straight down on it. She never tried different angles. Now, I don't know if that would have made a difference or...
  14. Hard knot in nipple pore - desperate for help!

    Hello, I am writing this message in hopes that someone out there has experienced what I am experiencing and can help me. I'm at my wit's end. Here's what is happening:

    I went back to work about...
  15. Re: I feel like breastfeeding is slipping away- help! (LONG

    Blinds or curtains is such a great idea! I never thought of that! Pumping in my own office would be so much more convenient. And I will be sure to never show embarrassment and to stand my ground. ...
  16. Re: I feel like breastfeeding is slipping away- help! (LONG

    Well, maybe it can work then! I just never thought it was possible to pump so much at my job! I wish I could just pump in my office -- I have my own office, but all of the doors have windows on...
  17. Re: I feel like breastfeeding is slipping away- help! (LONG

    Thanks everyone for the responses. I am sitting in bed right now with my baby. Going to try a nursing vacation. I spoke with my IBCLC this morning and she agreed that it isn't the best idea to...
  18. Re: I feel like breastfeeding is slipping away- help! (LONG

    Yes, I tried taking fenugreek but I didn't really see much of an improvement. As for the Reglan, my doctor prescribed it (not my IBCLC). My doctor never even mentioned the risk involved with taking...
  19. I feel like breastfeeding is slipping away- help! (LONG POST

    I'll start by saying that I feel that the whole breastfeeding experience is slipping away from me and it breaks my heart. :(

    I posted for the first time on here a few weeks ago with quite a list...
  20. Re: Baby doesn't seem to be getting enough milk - advice, pl

    My lc gave me the names of two different doctors that specialize in tongue ties. I think I will give one of them a call tomorrow. And no need to convince me that breastfeeding is better and cheaper...
  21. Re: Baby doesn't seem to be getting enough milk - advice, pl

    Thanks to those who responded! I have been trying to post this reply for the past few days but my little girl has been keeping me busy! I must say it is nice to hear that others have had a similar...

    My little girl is about 5 1/2 weeks old now and we have had issue after issue with breastfeeding! We had terrible latching issues while in the hospital. The lactation consultant at the hospital...
